Pushing Websites and Applications to Students

Pushing Websites and Applications to Students

Overview

This feature allows you to run an application or launch a website on student computers. This can be quite useful for younger students who have trouble navigating to a specific web address or starting a specific application.



Here is a brief video demonstrating how to push websites and applications to students:

Sending a Run Command to Student Computers

  1. Select one or more student computers from the Teacher Console. If none are selected, the command will be sent to ALL students.
  2. Click the Run button on the toolbar.
  3. Enter the Run command you would like to send to student computers.
